Council Tax payments and balances

Council tax payments

We offer a range of easy and convenient ways to pay your council tax.  

Pay online

You can pay your council tax online with our easy and secure payment facility.

Pay council tax

You will need your council tax account number (found on your bill) and a credit or debit card to make a payment.

Once you have entered your account number you will see your outstanding balance. This is updated each night to reflect payments or account changes.

Rather than paying online each month you can set up a regular Direct Debit payment.

Pay by Direct Debit

Direct Debit ensures regular payments are made on your choice of 1st, 8th, 15th or 22nd day of the month. This is our preferred payment method.

Setting up a Direct Debit is easy and you are protected by the Direct Debit guarantee.

If you do not already pay by Direct Debit and wish to start you can print out and complete a  Direct Debit instruction [PDF, 156Kb] and return it to the address on the form.

Alternatively a Direct Debit can be set up by telephone if both the bank account and council tax account are in your name. You can call us on  0300 3030164.

You will need your council tax account number (found on your bill) and your bank account details.

Pay by telephone 

Call 0300 3031014 to pay at any time of day. 

You will need your council tax account number (found on your bill) and a credit or debit card to make a payment.

Pay by standing order

You must arrange a standing order with your own bank. You will need the following information:

  • Our Barclay's bank sort code      20-76-30
  • Our bank account number         83416593

Ensure that only your council tax account number (found on your bill) is quoted.

Pay in person

Your barcoded council tax bill can be used when making payment in the following ways:

  1. Cash cheque or debit card at any Post Office®.
  2. Cash at a shop that has PayPoint.

You will need your barcoded bill and your payment. If you need a replacement barcoded bill please call us on 0300 3030164.
